Behavior is born out of emotions. So, whatever you feel drives your behavior – your actions in the world. And the only thing that we all can assess about one another is our actions. When a leader is cruel or mean, that’s someone who doesn’t know how to manage an ego, who doesn’t have self-awareness.
One of the cornerstones of effective leadership is self-awareness. So today we’re talking about leaders taking responsibility for their space and not holding other people accountable for their emotional health.
What you’ll find in this episode:
- All I experience from you are the words that come out of your mouth, the tone that’s in your voice, the things you do with your body.
- Why, if you’re in a position of authority, there’s no reason for you to use the negative emotion that translates into unmanaged behavior.
- How the thought model comes into play regarding self-awareness.
- Downton Abbey and not being a tool.
- Why leadership is harder than being powerful.
- How to tell when someone doesn’t have self-awareness on a regular basis.
